Christians in Marston & Northway share a common faith in God expressed in many forms of worship and service to the community. They work together on special events and projects through Churches Together – an association of Anglican, Evangelical, Roman Catholic, Russian Orthodox, United Reformed and other Christian churches in the area which is affiliated to Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
“LOVE MARSTON, LOVE LIFE”
Our community celebration will take place at the Mortimer Hall recreation ground at 3 pm on Sunday 20 May 2018. It will feature local choirs, musicians, spoken word, stalls, games, refreshments and guest speaker Tom Price. It’s an event for the whole of Marston, whether regular churchgoers or not.
ECUMENICAL QUIET DAYS 2018
The theme and format of each day is at the leader’s discretion, but it is expected that the two one hour sessions will offer an opportunity for input from the leader, time for some quiet reflection and for reaction/responses from the participants.
